Feature and Follow [5]

Alison Can Read Feature & FollowThis is a weekly blog hop hosted by the wonderful Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. Today's question is:

Q: How do you handle a book you don’t like? Do you DNF or do you power through?


For the most part, I usually finish the books that I'm having a heard time getting into and not enjoying. However there were two books that I DNF and those were Shiver by Maggie Steifvater and The Vampire Diaries by L.J Smith. Although I love the show, just couldn't get into the books.


  1. I hate to not finish a book too, but there are the occasional ones that must be DNFed for my own sanity!

  2. I didn't love Shiver either... I did finish that book but didn't bother to finish the series that's for sure!

  3. I haven't read Shiver even though it's been on my TBR list. The VD are a little different from the show.

    Thanks for stopping by my FF

  8. I never finished Shiver either, I've read the first five books of The Vampire Diaries, but yeah, the show is way better.

  9. I always follow through on books because I don't like not finishing. I'm a bloglovin follower.

  10. Usually I will give a book 50-100 pages before I DNF if I'm not enjoying it. I used to power through but I no longer have the time and it turned reading into a chore. There are too many books on my tbr pile for me to feel guilty and I'm picky about what I read, so only have 1 DNF so far!

  11. I don't mind DNF-ing if it's really not working for me, but if it seems like it has potential I stick with it.
